wholesome delicious japanese food
Submitted Sunday, July 13, 2008 - 5:38pm [Dine in]

If i hadnt been invited to this restaurant, i would never have known about this place for its modest location in the residential area of Vancouver. It's a very small place so seats are placed very 'economically'. The first seat we got in this packed restaurant were so close to the tables on each side of us that it was basically like sitting in the middle of a 6 seat table. We spotted a table on the other side that just freed up and chose to move over.

Well, enough about the crammed space, let's talk about the food! Choice of different fish you can get on your sushi is quite limited -- there are salmon, tuna and hokkigai(clam). But what you should get here is not sushi or rolls but what they call 'teishoku', which just means a full course meal in Japanese. It comes with rice, a few delicious side dishes and miso soup. We got black cod and deep fried oysters. AMAZING FOOD! Servers are nice and the atmosphere is quiet and inviting. My new favourite restaurant.

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
Yes, the best ramen in the city.

My Japanese friend I brought here with me said the experience at Kintaro is very much like back home -- the energy of the staff, the way their menu works, and the authenticity of their delicious ramen! It's always pretty busy, so their service is as good as it gets. I sometimes wait for my pepsi for...ever. but otherwise, the food itself comes out very quickly and the price is better than reasonable. I always get medium broth and fat bbq pork. also get a hamparaya pork chunks which is only 1 dollar but great in your soup. yum yum!

Benkei Ramen1741 Robson St, Vancouver
pretty and okay
Submitted Wednesday, June 25, 2008 - 10:35pm [Dine in]

I took my good Japanese friend there to try my first ramen. It's a relatively new place with a well-designed menu, pretty decorations and interior design for a small place. Back then I thought the food was pretty good, which was until i went to experience another ramen place on denman not too far away from Benkei. I always question the authenticity of the food as well as the taste. We got their onigiri (rice ball) which was quite tasty. On the other hand, Benkei's ramen tastes decent but it's nowhere near the authenticity or generosity of Kintaro. Toppings and pieces of Chashu (BBQ pork) you would get in Benkei is extremely poor compared to Kintaro. Also they use the wrong type of noodles -- it should be straight, not curvy. You can say that I am too picky, but if you want a real Ramen experience in the city, for the same price, I suggest you go to Kintaro instead.
